    Developer aheartfulofgames announced it will release the roguelike brawler Heart & Slash to the Nintendo Switch before the end of the year. 

     

    Here is an overview of the game:

    71 missions, 135 pieces of equipment, 6 selectable characters and 93 different enemies... with roguelike mechanics: random generation of maps, items and enemies. Every game will be a whole new adventure!

    Put yourself in the "shell" of Heart, a robot that doesn't function properly and struggles to maintain its identity against standardization henchmen. Along the way he meets Slash, a veteran of the dystopian world in which Heart & Slash takes place. You'll have to try and get Slash's attention, but how to do it will depend on the player. For every' challenge (every chance to impress Slash) you'll have a couple of opportunities that will end up defining the relationship between them and how the story ends. Will you choose your independence, or will you renounce to it in exchange for being loved? Or maybe you'll find a balance between the two that will allow the relationship to thrive?

    Key Features:

    • Fight using up to 75 different weapons and 60 different robot body parts that will change the way the game goes. 
    • Teleport, stop time, fly with a backpack, jump against the wall, discover the weaknesses of your enemies... You can try thousands of different combinations to achieve your goal, from almost unimportant details to play back parts of the story to try to change the result.
    • If you die, try again from the beginning. As with any good roguelike, every time you start a new game, both the levels of fighting and the items or weapons you collect will change. In this way, a game will not be the same as the previous one, which makes Heart&Slash not an easy game. 
    • A unique artistic and visual style that will take you back to classic games.
    • It offers a fast-paced and very dynamic gameplay system, with almost no time to take a breath, thanks to its short and intense levels.
    Heart & Slash is currently available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.

    Guan Suo (voiced by Hiroaki Miura)

    Growing up as the son of Guan Yu, he became an honest and hard-working warrior who always greeted anyone he met with sincerity. This trait made him very popular with the common people while his earnest innocence gained him popularity among many women.

    ◆ Jin

    Zhang Chunhua (voiced by Masumi Asano)

    Zhang Chunhua was well-known for her intelligence, a caring mother to two talented sons, Sima Shi and Sima Zhao, and a loving wife to Sima Yi. Although her face was never without a smile, she was feared by those in her family.

    System

    ◆ Weapons

    Enhance your weapons for an elevated and even more exhilarating experience!

    Players can enhance the abilities of their equipped weapons for high performing weapons. Weapons can be reforged by equipping gems, which can enhance the character’s abilities or add elemental attributes, and higher level weapons may become available for purchase as a reward for clearing missions. And if characters are equipped with their ‘favorite weapon,’ players can experience even more exhilarating action.

    Reforging Weapons

    Weapons can be reforged by equipping gems, which may result in randomly strengthening the attack or defense stats of the player character, or giving the weapon attack attributes such as fire, ice, thunder, wind, power or poison. Up to 6 gems, each with different effects to improve the character stats, can be equipped and their combinations will allow for varying attributes for each weapon.

    • Up to 6 attacks can be equipped on a weapon; three Trigger Attacks, and three Reactive Attacks can be selected. During battle, attacks using the gem attributes will be unleashed, such as fire and ice.
    • A Trigger Attack (launch) using fire elements may set the enemy ablaze.
    • A Trigger Attack using ice elements followed by a Flow Attack. Gem attributes will continue through from the Trigger to the follow-up Flow Attack.

    Obtaining Weapons

    Various weapons can be purchased at the Blacksmith. Weapons are classified as one of three types (common, rare, epic), with higher ranked weapons being more powerful, but also come at a higher price. Weapons can also be obtained by using scrolls and collecting materials to craft them. Scrolls and materials can be purchased from the Coin Collector or found around the field.

    • Browse through various Blacksmiths to find the weapon of your choice.
    • The common version of Cao Cao’s favorite weapon (general’s sword).
    • The rare version of Cao Cao’s favorite weapon (general’s sword). Compared to the common version, it has higher attack and defense power and a refined look.
    • The rare version of Sun Jian’s favorite weapon (nine rings blade).
    • The rare version of Liu Bei’s favorite weapon (twin swords).

    Favorite Weapon

    Characters can equip any weapon, but by equipping characters with their favorite weapon unique attack actions are executed, as well as increasing their ability to perform more powerful attacks or expanding their attack range.

    • When Zhang He is equipped with wheels, since it is not his favorite weapon he executes regular attacks by tossing them at the enemy.
    • When Wang Yi is equipped with wheels, since it is her favorite weapon she unleashes quick consecutive attacks on the enemy.
    • When Lu Bu is equipped with a mace, since it is not his favorite weapon he executes regular attacks by flinging it around.
    • When Guan Yinping is equipped with a mace, since it is her favorite weapon she executes a powerful blow to her enemies upon catching her mace after tossing it into the air.

    Dynasty Warriors 9 will launch for the PlayStation 4 on February 8 in Japan, and for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC in North America and Europe in early 2018.
